Three Navy SEALs involved in nabbing one of Iraq’s most wanted terrorists are reportedly facing criminal charges related to his capture — all because he claimed he had a bloody lip.
The SEALs took down Ahmed Hasim Abed, the alleged mastermind of a ghastly 2004 incident in which four American contractors who worked security for Blackwater USA, were murdered in Fallujah and two of the bodies were hung from a bridge over the Euphrates River.
But instead of being praised as heroes, the SEALs are all facing charges and have hired lawyers, FoxNews.com reported.
The poor guy was transferred to Iraqi authorities, and at that time, after he was out of US control, he claimed he’d been punched in the face after being captured. He showed them a bloody lip to prove it.
So our guys were investigated and enough was apparently found to charge them.
They refused an Admirals Mast so it’s going to court marital.
